Dear Family, I am sorry to have read about the loss of your dearly loved one William Keehn. I want to extend my condolences. The bible promises of a time when God will resurrect our loved ones. I hope you find comfort from these scriptures: Job 14:14,15 and John 5:28, 29. A time is coming very soon when Jehovah God will bring back to life all those we have lost in death. I hope this brings you some comfort. For more information visit

Daddy-O, how I would smile when calling you, sharing early morning coffee across the miles. You will never be gone, but the words 'lost innocence', and the end of an era come to mind. We would end our calls with "I wish you enough", and I will tell the meaning here for others to learn. I wish you enough sun to keep your attitude bright. I wish you enough rain to appreciate the sun more. I wish you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive. I wish you enough pain so that the smallest joys in life appear much bigger. I wish you enough gain to satisfy your wanting. I wish you enough loss to appreciate all that you possess. I wish you enough "Hello's" to get you through the final "Goodbye." I miss your "Hello's", the singing, and brightness you bring to the world. I will carry you in my heart forever! All my love, Laurie

I am so sorry for your loss. I would like to share a story about Bill. A couple months ago, my brother Keith toured the Three Creeks Assisted Living Center. Our mother is not doing well living alone, but she is still pretty spry. My brother asked if a bit of alcohol would be allowed on the premisses. The nurse said "Sure, just ask Bill" Bill was right around the corner and he perked right up and offered Keith a beer. Later, Keith told me about this.A few days later, I joined him for another tour. As I walked down the hallway, I saw a man in the game room putting together a puzzle. It took me half a second to realize it was Bill Keehn. I went into the room and had a wonderful conversation with him,now realizing this was the "Bill" my brother was talking about. He looked very good. All the other folks were sleeping their lunch off, but Bill was working his mind. When he found out my mother owned the Dairy Queen in Lowell, Bill took her hand and said "You own the Dairy Queen? Oh how I love your ice cream!" Bill then took us into his room and showed us around. It was full of aviation items and family pictures. He was a very proud man. You see, I was touched by seeing him because I have known him all my life. I walked past his hardware store every day going back and forth to South Ward. I also spent quite a few hours in his store. Sometimes I just went in to look around. Later in life, Bill mentored many of us as a coach and sponsor for the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. I still remember him telling all of us about his life and how stress had nearly killed him at a young age. I never forgot that lesson. Your dad was a wonderful man. He touched my life in a positive way. God bless him and his family.
